Beth Blum is an assistant professor of English at Harvard University, writer, and author of the book The Self-Help Compulsion.
What if Virginia Woolf and Samuel Beckett were really trying to tell us how to win friends and influence people? Beth Blum, assistant professor of English at Harvard University, joins host Krys Boyd to discuss how classic authors talked to audiences about themes of self-actualization, and how writers today still draw from that well of tips and tricks for better living. Her book is “The Self-Help Compulsion: Searching for Advice in Modern Literature.”
